"We just couldn't keep up with the speed and height of Chatfield," said Kingsland girls coach Jill Thalmann. "We stuck with them for most of the first half, but just couldn't overcome the deficit. Haley Colton and Jessi Kaster had another great defensive game. Our shots just wouldn't fall."

Colton and Marissa Bornholdt led the team with nine points each in the home game Friday, Dec. 20. Their highlights included three three's for Colton and five for six free throw shooting for Bornholdt. Bornholdt was two for two from the field and pulled down five rebounds. Kaster had three steals and three rebounds. Colton had team highs in steals (5) and assists (6).

Cheyenne Losey contributed seven points and six rebounds, while the consistent Lizzie Tart had eight points, six rebounds, two steals and three assists.

The team only hit 25 percent from the field, 13 of 52, and 50 percent from the line, nine of 18. The ladies did hit five three's, but took 21 shots from beyond the arc, 23.8 percent.

The gals will open 2013 at Lewiston-Altura (0-7, 1-9) on Friday.
